COLEMAN – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct the Coleman County Range, Pasture Herbicide Update and Prescribed Burn Program beginning with registration at 6:15 p.m. July 27 at the Bill Franklin Center in Coleman.
The center is at 13152 State Highway 206.
“This will be a very timely and topical program, and its name pretty well describes it all,” said Michael Palmer, AgriLife Extension agent in Coleman County. “Dr. Morgan Russell, AgriLife Extension range specialist at San Angelo, will be our guest speaker.
“Dr. Russell will delve into the mechanics of developing and implementing a prescribed burning program. She is well-versed in all aspects of this economical and effective range management method to control noxious plants. I will be presenting the herbicide update.”
Palmer said the evening will start with a barbecue meal served at 6:45 p.m. followed by the program at 7 p.m.
Two Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered.
Individual registration, payable at the door, is $20 with an RSVP by July 24. Late registration is $30. To RSVP and for more information, contact the AgriLife Extension office in Coleman County at 325-625-4519.
